|The priming lever on most mechanical lift pumps is often very small, sometimes hard to reach and occasionally won't work if the engine's cam is compressing the pump's spring. However, an external priming pump has none of these disadvantages. Some Caterpillar engines are equipped with high-volume plunger pumps that work extremely well, but they are the exception. Reverso, a manufacturer of a variety of marine products including fuel polishing and oil change systems, offers a manual priming pump that's up to the task. The plunger-type device pumps .85 ounces per stroke, and it's equipped with a large red locking collar to secure it when not in use. Working pressure is up to 100psi. Fuel passes through the pump unhindered during normal engine operation, and the pump is certified for use with up to 100 percent biodiesel. It's available in either half-inch female threaded or JIC flare fittings for $85 or $115 respectively. Visit www.reversopumps.com.

Throwback Thursday has us time traveling. The oil change pump OP-4 (left) was replaced by the updated version OP-6 (right) several years back. The redesign featured more streamlined, improved switchguard and breaker on the end of the motor. The pump maintained the same convenient internal and external threaded ports and quick flow rate of 3 gallons per minute. As Reverso's best-selling oil change pump in the marine industry, we still receive calls to this day from boat owners that continue using their OP-4 to maintain their engine oil. Here are common questions we get asked:
Are there spare parts available for the OP-4?
Today's impellers (360010 and 360014) are compatible, however the new cover gasket does not fit to OP-4. The cover gasket is no longer available for the OP-4.
I'd rather not buy a new pump. What can I do since the motor on the OP-4 still works fine?
Reverso offers the OP-6 pump head assembly as a replacement part and can retrofit to the OP-4 motor. The simple procedure only involves 2 screws for replacement. The updated pump head will then allow you to purchase the repair kits and rebuild kits currently sold.
Watch Reverso's YouTube video for detailed spare part replacements.

Three Cummins Power Generation generators at a Jefferson Parish canal pumping station were located above the maximum high-water level and continued to operate as long as they had fuel.
Being prepared will make the difference between keeping the lights on and a generator that can't keep running using degraded fuel. Robert Hamilton, Sales Director at Cummins Mid South, shares some important lessons we all can learn from Katrina's aftermath in 2005. He explains how generator location, fuel choice, fuel re-supply, and lastly power system maintenance will improve your standby generator's reliability–especially during long-term outages. Whether you have a new install or an existing system, there are best practices to reduce vulnerability during critical power. Hamilton states, "by replenishing the diesel fuel supply on a regular basis and properly treating it, facility operators can be assured of a fuel supply that is free from contaminants and deterioration."
Contaminants like water and particulate accumulate in the storage tank and generator belly tank if left only partially full and diesel fuel is unused for as little as 3 months. If untreated, the diesel fuel can continue to degrade and those unwanted contaminants could lead to costly generator repairs and shutdown. Fuel polishing systems should be installed to get rid of them and improve fuel quality. The diesel is pumped out, filtered through the system, and returned to the same tank. Reverso manufactures commercial systems in a wide range to best accommodate a facility's needs. Wall mount versions can be permanently installed on single tanks and the portable Diesel Fuel Service Cart is ideal for servicing sites with multiple generators.
